Paul Keuter, member of the management board, is leaving the Bundesliga soccer club Hertha BSC. The 47-year-old will say goodbye to the club on September 30, as Hertha confirmed on Tuesday evening. The "Bild" newspaper had previously reported on it. Keuter has been a member of the management of Berliner since January 2016. Most recently, he was responsible for CSR (Corporate Social Responsibility), digital transformation, identity and internationalization.
He is considered to be one of the brains behind the Hertha Bundesliga team kneeling before the home game against Schalke 04 in October 2017 as a sign against racism. Keuter also promoted Hertha's social commitment in other areas. Among other things, a code of ethics was developed during his time at the club. Keuter was criticized, among other things, when Frank Zander's entry anthem "Nur nach Heimat" was briefly replaced by the song "Dickes B" by the band Seeed. This step was reversed shortly thereafter.
